well after building transformers for two weeks nonstop i thought i'd take a quick break from that to build a bionicle for my fans if i even have any. Anywho, i've built this 17" long (not including his tail)wild cat/dragon creature. originally i didn't have his rider,Sir Arrifu but i added him after i completed Renlek because he didn't look right. well i guess i should talk about their story for a bit. so, Sir Arrifu was knighted by the king of Zola island for acts of bravery during the seven-island civil war(more on that in future MOCS). After the war Sir Arrifu found a baby Renkru beast fighting for it's life in the forest near his village. He cared for the beast until it was fully grown and tried to release him back into the forest but he wouldn't leave. so Sir Arrifu threw a saddle on him and has been riding him ever since. over the years the two became famous for their skills in jousting. But one day Sir Arrifu was trying to help a matoran that was being chased by a rahi from the forest. The rahi spooked Renlek and he charged right into the king's castle, destroying over half of it. The king(future MOC) banished the two from the kingdom. Sir Arrifu's evil brother (another future MOC!) began to attack the kingdom. Arrifu and Renlek returned to the kingdom the fight his brother and reclaim his rightful place in the Zola kingdom.
Well i hope you like my new addition. I think i will continue the story with the future MOCS i pointed out during the story. i actually enjoyed writing that!:) PLEASE RATE AND COMMENT!

i wanted to do an action shot so i took a picture of Sir Arrifu petting his steed Renlek.
and finally her is a close up of Sir Arrifu. i love the way Vezon looks so i used the same body and mask but i used the alternate mask built into Vezon's mask. wow i couldn't think of a better way to explain that, too bad i had to use the word mask so much!
WOW this is by far my favorite rahi MOC I've seen. I've tried to build rahi, and I just can't seem to get anything that I like. Everything on this MOC just flows so nicely into each other. I get that same kind of flow from My mocs, but I haven't been able to achieve it on a rahi. If I could order one of these as a set, and had the money to, I would in a heart beat. The only thing I don't like is the rider. Fro suck an epic rahi, your ridr seems like such a dis appointment. She/he needs to be more epic, and maybe a bit bigger. I think given the size of the rahi you can make a bit bigger rider. Thruely amazing design.

Renlek looks DEVASITATING! Does his jaws open and close? If they do could I see a shot like that? I like how you used the alternate mask from vezon. Do you consider yourself a master builder?
Thanks! The jaw does open and close. I'll post a picture of it for you. And no I don't consider myself a master because I still have a lot more to learn before I can call myself a master.
